The history of the orangery goes way back hundreds of years, when well-to-do Europeans were in need of a warm place to grow fruit and plants in the winter. But just because their design is old doesn’t mean they’re passé – on the contrary. Much like vinyl records, orangeries have made a comeback into our homes. Or did they ever really leave? And how did they manage to stay so fashionable? The answer is simple: they’ve gone modern, effortlessly slotting in alongside our homes as if they’ve always been meant to be there.
When in need of extra living space, the Hall family opted for an orangery. And a modern orangery it is, clad in dual-coloured cream uPVC and Solaroof panels up top. Together they make for a light-filled space that’s the perfect dining room backdrop. This structure originated hundreds of years ago? You’d never know.
Here’s what Mr. Hall had to say about his modern orangery:
Q: Please can you explain why you decided to have an orangery installed?
A: My new house needed more space.
Q: What made you contact Anglian in the first place?
A: Past experience.
Q: Did you speak to any other companies, and if so, what made you decide to choose Anglian?
A: Yes. I chose Anglian because of their speed of response.
Q: Can you tell me if or how the visit from the sales rep helped you in your decision and final choice of style, colour and material?
A: They were prompt and helpful.
Q: What’s the BEST thing about your new installation, and what main differences have you noticed since having your installation?
A: The best thing about my new orangery is the extra living space.
